Molecular Characterization of Some Hibiscus Species Cultivated in Mauritius

Abstract—Studies were undertaken for the determination of genetic variation within Hibiscus species present in Mauritius using morphological traits and Random Amplified Polymorphic (RAPD) markers. 12 morphological characters were used to characterise seven Hibiscus species and greater variations in flower colour, size and shape were observed between species and varieties studied. RAPD amplification successfully generated polymorphisms in all the seven Hibiscus species studied. From the present study, RAPD analysis in combination with morphological characters can be used in the identification and determination of the genetic variation between the different varieties and species of Hibiscus. RAPD technique can be said to be reliable and promising for the characterisation of the Hibiscus germplasm and therefore Sequence Characterised Amplified Regions (SCAR) primers can be easily designed for many of these Hibiscus varieties and species.
